delighted to have my work as part of this show, opening tomorrow....

“Home is Where the Needle Marks”

June 9th / (Sub)Urban Home / 501 Main St. Los angeles CA. / Opening Reception
June 16th / Pop tART Gallery / 3023 W. 6th St. Los Angeles CA. / Opening Reception
Curated by: Ellen Schinderman

The Pop tART Gallery in association with (Sub)Urban Home are pleased to present “Home is Where the Needle Marks.”This group exhibition will explore the concept of home and all that the word connotes, highlighting the contrast of contemporary artists using stitch vs. preconceived notions of “Home Sweet Home.” The artist was asked to submit works that deal with the idea of how they interpret their own place of refuge. Specifically as a place of old routines, identities, shelter or whatever resonates personally. The show will embody all types of stitch works including crochet, knitting, embroidery, cross-stitch, needlepoint, quilting, and applique.Rather than one opening reception, this special show will hold two opening receptions to celebrate the work that has been submitted from all over the world. The first exhibition reception will open with smaller to larger handmade pieces that will be displayed in an actual home furnishings store to support the theme of the show. The second show will open a week later at Pop tART Gallery with larger scale installation style pieces and will stay up for three weeks for public viewing.

Participating Artists Include: Sarah Terry of Guerilla Embroidery, Bren Ahearn, Iviva Olnick, Suvi Aarnio, Ruth Tabancay, Brian Schetzsle, Penny Mateer, Joy Ude, Rebecca Ringquist, Sarah Corbett, Yu Cotton-well Alaina Varrone, Xiang Gao, Yarn Bombing LA, Ashley Blalock, Kathy Halper, Robert Marbury, Joetta Maue, Julie Jackson, Bascome Hogue, Ben Cuevas, Luke Haynes, Drucilla Petitbones, Tod Hensley, Erin Daniels Endicott, Mark Bieraugel, and Ellen Schinderman
